If searching for the best format to listen to your music, it is all about individual preference as much as what is well-known. While it seemed for a while that vinyl was dead and gone, there was a segment of the listening population that made sure it in no way really went away. And now at most music store and many places on the internet, you can find vinyl albums, even new launches.But for the majority of people, digital is the way they have chosen to go. Digital music holds an advantage over every other format and will continuously have this advantage. The advantage is convenience. There is just nothing else as portable and convenient as digital music. No other format lets you literally store all of your music on one device that fits in your pocket. And it is even more convenient when you want to acquire the music.It just takes a few seconds to download a song over Wi-Fi or on your desktop, and with the speeds of 3G and 4G; you can even download them with your phone if you want. However that method does take a bit longer and uses lots of your data. But the music sounds great and you can play your digital music through your computer, smart phone or MP3 device and even plug it in your car or at home. Many new cars let you listen to your music through the cars stereo using Bluetooth which is about the most convenient way you can think of.There are no wires, no plugging in, simply sit back and enjoy the music, and of course keep your eyes on the road and drive carefully. But for plenty of people, especially older people, not so much kids and teenagers, they want a hard copy of the music and want to be able to examine the artwork and read the lyrics from the CD or vinyl insert. In this case, you can always purchase the hard copy of the music and transfer it into a digital format for easy transport and extra convenience.Yet even then, you don't get the full effect of vinyl especially. Part of the enjoyment and fun of listening to music on vinyl, primarily older vinyl, is hearing the imperfections, the raw sound that takes you back to the past. A lot of people grew up listening to records, and while they may appreciate the perfection of digital formats, they favor the sound of vinyl.
